Kelsey Picard

PhD Candidate - Natural Sciences, University of Tasmania

"I love the challenge of stripping back these complex concepts to simpler more easily digestible concepts to help spread reasons to be enthusiastic about science and discovery to others."

When she’s not at work you can find Kelsey in her garden, bush walking or browsing the latest craft beer releases at the local bottle store. Kelsey is nearing the end of her PhD studying what genes control flowering in peas. She was drawn to plant science because of the multitude of applications plants have in our lives, and how we can use biotechnology to improve our food sources. Kelsey is a co-host of TWICS and one of the gallery coordinators for this event as well as a co-founder of Science Made Beerable.
